The series tells the dynamic moments of his life, like knocking out fighters in seconds, shocking losses, high-profile relationships, lavish life, prison stint, and triumphant return to fame.

Produced by 20th Television, Trevante Rhodes stars and serves as one of the series’ executive producers. Karin Gist serves as the series showrunner. Alongside Rhodes are cast members Russell Hornsby, Harvey Keitel, Laura Harrier, and Li Eubanks.

“Mike” is a biographical series that will lead to more sports stories being told by Hulu. Last year President of ABC Entertainment and Hulu Originals Craig Erwich told Deadline the following: “Biographical pictures are a fan favorite and a staple of the movie and television business and frequently the subjects are not involved. We have a strategy of taking a modern lens and applying it to stories and figures of popular culture of the past. We’ve had a lot of success doing that, and I think it reveals interesting things, not just about where we’ve been but where we are, so we’re looking forward to continuing the creative conversations behind Iron Mike.”

Hulu’s “Mike” premieres on August 25.
